Ewan Henderson signs new deal at Celtic

Celtic midfielder Ewan Henderson has signed a new long-term contract.

The 18-year-old has extended his deal to the summer of 2022, less than a week after marking his first appearance of the season with an assist against St Mirren.

The midfielder, brother of former Celtic and current Hellas Verona player Liam Henderson, made his debut with a late substitute appearance against Kilmarnock in May last year.

Henderson told the Celtic View: “At this stage, I’m just taking everything day by day.

“I’ll continue to work hard and I’ll try my best to get chances in the first team. If I can get them, then I’ll take them. All I want to do is try my best.

“Looking at the players who have come through the academy and are now in the first team, it’s really inspiring. They’ve all done incredibly well and they are great role models for every young boy that has also come through the academy to look up to.

“It’s really good that they are there, and helps us keep focused. It’s my job now to get the head down again, work hard and hopefully take more chances as they come.”
